Minibeast Poems

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

as part of my topic about minibeasts, I was wondering if anyone knew of a good poem about how minibeasts move? we have done alot of work on snails so could do with a poem that mentions how diffferent minibeasts move. I guess I could make my own up but if anyone has already, than would love to see!! I thought the kids could create some group poems to perform with actions to match, use instruments etc.

 

Also whilst I talking about minibeasts, anything with regards to spiders!!

 

cheers guys

Hi Lottie

One of the songs on the Sticky Kids CD's is about minibeasts-I suppose you could use it as a poem. It goes as follows-

 

How does a butterfly go?

Hey ho does anybody know?

How does a butterfly go?

A flutter, flutter all day long.

 

How does an earthworm go? etc.

A wriggle, wriggle all day long

 

How does a little cricket go? etc.

A hopping, hopping all day long.

 

How does a cockroach go? etc.

A scuttle, scuttle all day long

 

 

You could ask the children for other ideas and what those insects do.

There's a worm at the bottom of my garden

And his name is Wiggly Woo

There's a worm at the bottom of my garden

And all that he can do -

Is wiggle all night

And wiggle all day

Whatever else the people do say;

There's a worm at the bottom of my garden

And his name is Wiggly, Wig-Wig-Wiggly,

Wig-Wig-Wiggly Woo-oo!

Good fingerplay -

 

2 little caterpillars sitting on a branch

1 called Betty, 1 called Blanche

Crawl away Betty, crawl away Blanche

Crawl back Betty, crawl back Blanche

 

I use the basic rhyme & adapt it for all sorts of animals, making up names & situations!
